The first day of spring brought with it an amazing donation of “wish list” items contributed by Fairview Elementary and Middle School students. From toothpaste to laundry soap, crayons to air dry clay, the Fairview School District’s families gave generously to this part of the year-long Fairview Cares campaign. Twenty-nine boxes filled with donated items with an estimated value of $2,000 were delivered by district teachers Alysabeth Mahood and Carol Elliott who explained that their Fairview Cares student leaders had developed several initiatives to encourage students to participate in this collection.

In late December students involved in the leadership of Fairview Cares visited the Art House accompanied by School Superintendent Erik Kincade. After Sr. Annette spoke to the group about the mission of the Art House, several faculty members further explained our program for inner city children as they toured small groups through the facility.

Their website,, explains that “Fairview Cares is a philanthropy initiative set up by the Fairview School District. . . Fairview Cares collects donations year round. . . . Since the first Fairview Cares week in 2013, over $63,000 has been donated” to Erie County organizations. Recipients named for 2017 are The Regional Cancer Center, Fairview Student Support Fund, the Neighborhood Art House, and the Erie County Crime Victim Center.

Fairview Cares week will cap off the year’s activities with a 5K walk at Jack Bestwick Stadium. The 2017 event will be Sunday, May 21st, 2017. All are welcome. Information is on their web page. According to Erik Kincade, Superintendent, Fairview Cares has gone beyond the schools themselves with Fairview individuals and businesses providing extensive support and assistance.

The Neighborhood Art House is very grateful to be chosen as one of the 2017 Fairview Cares recipients!
